New DeSIRA-LIFT publications: Exploring the off-farm production, marketing and use of organic and biofertilisers in Africa

Soil health is essential for farming and food systems, also in Africa. We are proud to share the findings of a recent scoping study on the production and marketing of organic and biological fertilisers in Africa. These fertilisers are essential for soil health in Africa, and there are various initiatives to support the development of these products and value chains. However, there are also still many challenges to be addressed to untap the potential, including recycling of organic waste streams, providing a conducive enabling environment, improving certification and quality assurance, and raising awareness. A holistic approach is crucial to improve soil health in Africa and increase agricultural productivity. Read all about it in these new publications!
